Phishing Attacks Increase Tech Sophistication, Focus On Financial Fraud | Article
Phishing attacks are becoming more sophisticated, even when the attackers themselves aren’t. Basic, even free, phishing kits now contain a variety of clever functions, as well as obfuscation and anti-analysis techniques, according to a report released today by PhishLabs.
Phishing kits now often include features like pre-filled form data, high-quality emulation, live polls, and chained forms with false error messages to encourage victims to share more information, and phishing pages for mobile platforms. They’re equipped with measures that allow them to impersonate legitimate businesses without being flagged by Web crawlers and identified as phishing pages.
